It is also not uncommon that such persons practice paths of the lower tantras. It is unusual that persons of the stage of generation are said to practice paths of the stage of completion, but there are two instances in which this occurs: (1) at the end of the stage of generation and (2) when an external “seal”* (sexual consort) is used. In the first case, a spontaneous entry of winds into the central channel may be experienced upon finishing the stage of generation. According to Dzong-ka-ba, the stage of generation is finished at the point where there has been full development of a meditative stabilization that is a union of calm abiding and special insight.
